I see it all the time...

Busy people beginning a wellness program who:

  • Start a new gym or fitness plan, grow impatient with their results & quit entirely. 

  • Try nutrition programs that completely ignore their lifestyle or metabolic needs.

  • Lose focus on their goals & do too much at once trying to achieve them.

  • Tie their identity to their busyness. 

  • Ignore the connection of their mental  health to their physical.

  • Abandon their intuition about their personal needs because they're afraid of getting it wrong.



  • Wants a total body composition renovation

  • Craves more balance in their daily routine

  • Feels like they're doing all the right things, but making no progress


  • Has always wanted to look & feel more athletic.

- Angie S.

I was done having kids & wanted to get my body back on track. I needed some accountability & someone to guide me into the best way to getting my body and eating habits back on track. 

I lost about 20 pounds and gained back a lot of confidence. I also learned a ton as well! Vanessa is realistic, & makes sure that I know that we aren't all perfect, and adjusts her programs for LIFE. 

I really like how she tries to get to know my personality & my home life because these are such important attributes when being successful in a nutrition program! She knows a lot more than many nutritionists & she cares about her clients- she really & truly personalizes her plans to what works best for your life.
